Here is example of the basic Northwind Linked Data Views deployment. The sequence of operations is very common for adding SPARQL access to existing application.

There exist few important questions to answer. Who should have access to data behind Linked Data View? Should someone have access to other sorts of RDF data but not to the new View? What are applications that should be interoperable with the new RDF data source? Are there any applications that produce similar data but that data sould be kept apart from data made by view? How to ensure that deployment the view will not cause problems for other applications?

First of all, we decide whether the default web service endpoint should have access to the data in question. If it should then we have to grant SELECT privileges to the account "SPARQL" that is used for the default endpoint; if it should not but some custom edpoint should then grant to the owner account of that account. Granting access is less trivial that it is usual. On one hand, those who can make SQL SELECT statements on application's tables can also make SPARQL queries on Linked Data View over that tables, because it makes SQL inside. On the other hand, those who do not intend to query that data at all may get unexpected "permission denied" errors on queries that worked fine before adding an Linked Data View. If SPARQL compiler can not prove that the query can not access data from the view then it will generate SQL code that will access tables behind the view. In some cases permission problems should be resolved by creating Linked Data View in a separate RDF storage . In this example, data are public:

use DB;

GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Products" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Suppliers" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Shippers" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Categories" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Customers" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Employees" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Orders" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Order_Details" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Countries" TO "SPARQL";
GRANT SELECT ON "Demo"."demo"."Provinces" TO "SPARQL";

Interoperability is the next question. The example is not interoperable with anything so in can provide data of any form, a real application will probably use some ontology from external source. Sometimes data should be converted from internal application's representation to something different (such as metric to imperial or ATT country code to two-character country id); sometimes composed IRIs should follow special rules; function-based IRI classes may help in that cases. As this is the first example, only plain format-string-based IRI classes are used.

We should also ensure that data generated by the new view will not be accidentally mixed with other data of the database. For that purpose the example will use a unique graph name that includes both application name and host name. In addition, the script will drop declarations that might remain from a previous run of the same script. The script is executed many times during the development so erasing previous version is worth writing. It will report an error if there's nothing to erase but it's better than unpredictable errors due to writing new declarations over existing ones.

[Note] Note

Making graph name unique for every host is not needed if the application is supposed to be "local" and nobody will access more than one installation of the application. If this is the case, use some fixed graph IRI, not necessarily starting with hostname at all; this is much more convenient for querying because you don't have to calculate the graph name in each query. With fixed graph in use, it is still possible to clone the Linked Data View to map to a unique graph as soon as the application become "public" and requires merging data from many installations.

SPARQL drop quad map graph iri("http://^{URIQADefaultHost}^/Northwind")
;
SPARQL drop quad map virtrdf:NorthwindDemo
;

The {URIQADefaultHost} macro is replaced with the value of DefaultHost parameter of [URIQA] section of configuration file. The IRI is written as iri("http://^{URIQADefaultHost}^/Northwind") , not as <http://^{URIQADefaultHost}^/Northwind> because macro of this sort works only inside SPARQL string values.

Now it's safe to create IRI classes needed for the view. If these classes are used only in the view we define then it is safe to create all of them in a single statement. If some of them are used across multiple declarations then errors may occur. it is impossible to redefine an IRI class that is in use; the compiler will try to avoid reporting errors by checking whether the new declaration is identical to the existing one and by trying garbage collection in hope that the IRI class is used only in garbage, but errors may occur anyway. Thus it is better to declare "shared" IRI classes by individual statements and group together only "private" IRI classes of a view. If a "class redefinition" error occurs in the middle of a group then "undefined class" errors may occur after because the processing of the group was interrupted before rest of group was not executed. When in trouble, try DB.DBA.RDF_AUDIT_METADATA procedure.

SPARQL

create iri class northwind:CategoryPhoto "http://^{URIQADefaultHost}^/DAV/VAD/demo/sql/CAT%d#this" (in category_id varchar not null) .
;

One IRI class per subject type; format strings begin with same host but different directory names so this will let the compiler to guess the type of subject by the text of IRI. Most of declarations are bijections and may get option (bijection) hint but these format strings are so simple that the compiler may understand it by itself. (northwind:Employee is not a bijection because sprintf_inverse will be unable to split the tail of IRI string and find the boundary between first and last name.)

The final operation is extending the default quad storage with new tree of quad map patterns.
